This delightful and charming approximately 1881 sq foot Craftsman-style home has been lovingly cared for by one family for over 40 years, making it a place where countless cherished memories have been created.

Embraced by two inviting porches at both front and side entrances, plus an additional rear deck, this 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home boasts period elegance and modern upgrades. The owners have thoughtfully enhanced many essential systems, such as foundations and the roof, ensuring the property's longevity and comfort.

A standout feature is the spectacular detached garage/workshop, with interiors sheathed in reclaimed barn siding by noted local craftsman Jeffery Ruiz.
